Drug free?

This article makes some good points about why testing tenants is a good idea, but I don’t know.  It makes me nervous because there’s so much room for abuse.  And Chicago doesn’t exactly have a history of taking the non-corrupt route.  What do you guys think?

The idea of testing Chicago Housing Authority tenants for illegal drug use is drawing the usual, tiresome objections from the usual, tiresome complainers: It’s humiliating, offensive, invasive and insensitive. It’s more “blaming the victim” and punishing “people for being poor.”
